Walk 1-1: The Dalry Hills

A lovely walk exploring the Glenkens


The hills around St. John’s Town of Dalry might not win any prizes for altitude, but what they lack in stature they make up for with the panoramas that they offer. Commanding views as far as the Lake District, they are the jewels in the Glenkens Crown.

The walk route follows parts of the Southern Upland Way, and passes many interesting features both natural and antiquarian with Covenanting connections.  Add to this the local knowledge of the walk leader, and you will be assured to have an enjoyable walk.
